MCR 04 audit

To maintain the performance level of treatment works it is important to conduct an external audit on a regular basis, at least every few years intervals.

Audit can also be used as a research tool for problem causes within a problem solving process (PSP).

We offer three (3) types of audits adapted to different needs for our customers:


Quick audit

MCR 04 audit rapide

This type of audit focused on a particular problem experienced by the company for some time.

The goal is to quickly identify potential causes either in the operation, to the equipment, or monitoring program and laboratory testing. An action plan results from this activity, which may or may not arise to additional activities.

For the on-site part of the audit, one person for two days is generally enough.


Process audit

MCR 04 audit de procede

This type of audit is usually done when a client needs to increase its process capacity or if he faced repeatedly to environmental exceedances or risks of environmental exceedances.

The audit focuses on a detailed review of the operation and performance of the various process equipment, database, monitoring program and laboratory procedures. Our diagnostic equipment are used to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the treatment process.

A thorough analysis of operating data and design parameters is done to establish the limit and residual treatment capacity of treatment facilities, the needs of additional treatment capacity and to specify the range of values for Key performance indicators (KPI).

At the end, an action plan is proposed to upgrade equipment or procedures.

For the on-site part of the audit, two people and five days are generally required.



Treatment plant general audit (equipment/operation/risks)

MCR 04 audit du traitement

This type of audit is generally required when a customer wants an operational risk assessment of its treatment works. This is the traditional audit focused on the equipment, works and operational documentation available from the company. No testing with our diagnostic equipment is provided for this type of mandate.

The objective of the audit is to highlight all the elements that pose risks to the company, opportunities for improvement and prioritize actions to correct or reduce the identified risks.

The audit is usually done by two people over 2-3 days on site and consists of 3 parts:

  • Part #1 Design, structures and equipment
  • Part #2 Operation and control procedures
  • Part #3 Monitoring program and laboratory measurements
